Training, Mentoring & Educating employees of all ages in my 30 year career has been very rewarding to me. I know and can explain Theory and my experience provides a Real World approach to accounting and finance, economics and writing.

I have coached 3 of the major sports for my children from the starter programs thru participation in national travel teams. I have trained and educated students that have differing learning processes and attention levels. I focus on the method of educating that works for the person learning and am not a traditionalist by any stretch.

I am a CPA that has been performing accounting, auditing, finance and economics functions for over 20 years. I have handled the technical accounting and reporting requirements for a few major public companies. I am a hands on Corporate Controller that knows the accounting rules and requirements. I have used manual as well as very automated systems in accounting.

I work with my teams regularly to make sure that they have a complete understanding of the accounting for financial transactions that they are completing. Monthly I review the financial reports for businesses here in the United States and for many other entities located around the globe. I work with consolidations, foreign exchange, GAAP and IFRS, Transfer Pricing, US and Foreign Taxes. There is not much in accounting that I have not worked with and trained my team in.


Over the past 30 years, as Chief Operating Officer & Global Corporate Controller for a number of major international corporations, I have been the on-site leader and subject matter expert in areas of Accounting, Business Development, Marketing, Sales, Engineering, Treasury, Risk Management, Logistics, Legal, Call Centers, Taxation and Production Operations. I have successfully grown businesses from $330 Million in sales to $725 Million in sales over a period of 3 years. This was completed through internal product expansion, product line acquisitions and business acquisitions. I have worked in a number of major industries on a domestic and international basis. These industries include retail, e-commerce and distribution, electronics manufacturing, semiconductor manufacturing, automotive and aerospace manufacturing, financial services and oil and gas.


Economics was my second major at the University. I have worked with the Theory, but apply more practice and practical solutions to most economic situations in business daily. Courses that I have completed and can instruct: MicroEcon, MacroEcon, Advanced Micro, Advanced Macro, Money & Banking, Comparative Economic Systems, International Economics, Marxian Economics, Law & Economics, American Economic History, Labor Economics, Financial Economics, Managerial Economics, Economics of Taxation. I can assist with specific subject areas within these broad topics as well.

Microsoft Outlook

Since Microsoft came out with Outlook as a part of their Office Suite of products, I have been using Outlook daily. I am presently using MS Office 10 and have used versions going back to 98. I use this system to track and share my calendar, keep my contacts up to date and share them with my iPhone, track all of my inbound and outbound mail, and set up the tasks to remind me of specific key items that I need to complete. So I have been using Outlook regularly for 10+ years in business on a Global basis.

Tax Preparation

I have been a CPA since 1979, and have been involved with many types of taxation - individual, corporate, partnership, estate, for state and federal purposes.
I have been a corporate CFO or Controller for many years in my career and one of the key areas of my responsibility has been tax management, tax planning, tax risk management, for both domestic and international operations.

As a CPA I have to take continuing education courses to maintain my license each year. I presently participate in tax courses delivered by Deloitte, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young, KPMG and BDO on a regular basis throughout each month so that I can stay on top of current trends and processes in many areas of taxation.

I am a licensed CPA and a member of the AICPA.


20+ years of legal and financial documents and agreements - from a few pages to volumes in an acquisition of a business.
